The film follows the Academy Award winner’s character, Jackie Justice– a mixed martial arts fighter who strives to make a comeback in the sports world after previously leaving her notable career to battle a few personal struggles of her own.
Down on her luck and simmering with rage, Jackie attempts to enter the ring again, but life forces her to deal with another unexpected challenge as she struggles to make amends with her estranged son, whom she gave up as an infant.
